The need for speed will widen the chasm between Dev and Ops, threatening IT as we know it

As organizations strive for speed and efficiency in IT, developers are using a variety of tools and services to get the job done. Architectures like microservices are the backbone of new, dynamic apps, and containers are being used to speed deployment of the new functionality. This creates application complexity that makes today's static dashboards and human, manual assessments obsolete, forcing Operations teams to find new tools and ways to ensure quality of service.

Automation and intelligence will be the answer for Ops teams. Automation provides discovery, insight and a model of everything that constructs the application, including logical and physical interdependencies between the microservices, middleware and containers. Artificial intelligence provides fast performance analysis, predicts potential incidents and offers remediation options. Automation and AI will help Ops teams gain the speed to match that of modern application Dev teams, bridging the chasm between them and advancing IT.
